Watch: All The Goals As Man City Obliterate Burton 9-0
By Eoin Lyons

Burton Albion visited the Etihad this evening in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Man City, and at full time, it's fair to say they were completely deflated.

A strong Man City side never let up as the home side, scoring NINE goals to make the return leg at the Pirelli Stadium a dead rubber.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring with a rare header in the fifth minute after a wonderful cross from David Silva:

City's advantage was doubled on the half hour mark when Gabriel Jesus headed home a loose ball from a rebound:


Four minutes later and Pep Guardiola's side would be 3-0 up, with David Silva timing his run to perfection and laying the ball off to Jesus, who finished low and hard against the post:

Another three minutes later and it would be Zinchenko getting in on the act, though his looping shot looked more like a cross gone wrong that anything else:

After the break City did not let up and on 57 minutes, Jesus completed his hat trick, heading home after good work from Riyad Mahrez on the right:

England youngster Phil Foden smashed home a sixth for City:

Jesus would plunder his fourth goal of the afternoon  on 65 minutes in what was probably the slickest move of the night, Leroy Sane controlling well before nutmegging a Burton Albion player with his outside of the boot cross, which the Brazilian duly poked home:

An eight would then come five minutes later when Kyle Walker, clearly desperate to get in on the act found himself in the opposition box, coolly slotting home after a pull back from Mahrez:


The ninth and final goal was scored by Mahrez in the 86th minute, with a scrappy finish in the box at the second attempt:

By the end of the game City fans were chanting 'we want ten', but it was a grim experience for Burton fans or indeed the neutral as the Premier League side completely outclassed Nigel Clough's men.
